and bill clinton comes in, makes the democratic party look fabulous, the economy look really good. how do you fix that in one night? >> that's what mitt romney has to begin trying to do. this is it for mitt. that was the lead of my piece in "the huffington post," words of one sill belabel. this is it for mitt. >> it rhymes. >> he has to change the conversation, and do what you said, which is express clear, big, convincing, humane and understandable thoughts about he, how he can be the better person to take the economy forward and take the country forward. he said he wanted this to be about the economy. the romney -- the obama people have jammed the radar, romney's radar for six months, ago? now romney has 60 million people out there. he has to look at the camera and say, this is in simple, clear terms is how i'm going to help you and how we're going to fix the economy. >> same question to you. the economy looks better than romney does. that's the problem he faces. >> one of his biggest challenges tonight is to stand on that stage and convince people watching, something north of 60 million
h.w. bush believed strategically that ross perot would take votes from then challenger bill clinton. insisted onmpaign ross perot's inclusion. the commission first proposed his inclusion, and then they allowed him to purchase a bit in a single debate. it was only because george h.w. bush and clinton pushed for his inclusion. four years later, ross perot runs for president again. he had $29 million in taxpayer funds. 79% of the american people wanted to see him in the debates. yet, he was excluded. this time, the candidates wanted to keep him out. bob dole was desperate to keep him out of the debate because he thought that ross perot would take votes away from him. bill clinton did not want anyone to watch the debates. he wanted a non event. bill clinton of the two -- agreed to include ross perot on the condition that one of the debates was canceled, and the other was scheduled opposite the world series of baseball, and there were no follow-up questions. that is what the american people got. exactly as president clinton wanted, by design, the lowest debate audience in history. who to
with then president president h.w. bush, bill clinton and ross perot. >> in terms of the recession, of course you feel it when you're president of the united states. that's why i'm trying to do something about it. >> it really is a pleasure to have you here with us today touching on that 1992 contest. clearly, the most at ease was bill clinton. >> i heard pundits talking about what may happen today and i don't believe anybody knows. the best laid plans of the campaigns, who knows what's going to happen. jim lehrer's questions may alter the course of events. we don't know if romney's going to get to use his zingers. we don't know if obama's going to press the 47% issue. i don't think anybody knows what's going to happen. >> as a moderator, not only did you make history, you had to walk a very line, but what sort of pitfalls do moderators have to be wary of? >> well, you have, you can't, you can't think about what people are going to say about you. i tried to do my job as a good journalist, to be fair and to be objective and to be professional. and to seek the truth. i employed those attributes as a rep
to fix things. so he's not going to try and be bill clinton here, i feel your pain. but what he's going to try to do is say i'm focused on your concerns. >> can a debate like tonight's debate really change the direction of this campaign? >> i think it can accelerate or decrease momentum one way or another. and i went back and looked at 2004 for example when you had john kerry and george bush. in sort of late september bush was ahead of kerry by about seven points. after the first debate it was a two-point margin because john kerry did very well. then george w. bush came back and did better at the next debate. but he did narrow the gap after that first debate. and in a race that's as closes a this, wolf, that could make all the difference. >> very close in florida and virginia, for example and a debate tonight could impact the undecided voters. thanks, gloria. >> uh-huh. >>> you want to talk about the trial of the century, it could have happened if the raid in pakistan had unfolded differently. and a woman who came close to death in portland, maine's harbor can thank her lucky stars for
not look presidential. bill clinton and the president have been able to build up the notion that the economy's better than we thought. 57% of the people think that the economy is getting better. what a dramatic advantage. >> well, i agree with steve. this is mitt's moment. he said months ago to supporters just wait until i get on the stage with the president. just wait until i get to confront him, when i get to explain my version of reality versus his. that's when i'm going to shine. and he has to do it tonight. i agree with you and steve, that he has to be specific. he has to be detailed. partly because people haven't warmed to mitt romney as a person. they don't really trust him yet as a person. all the more important that he set out a specific plan, that makes sense. and that he does it in a humane way. i agree with steve. he has to be -- it's okay if he's serious but he has to make it clear that he wants the job. he wants to be hired by the american people for this job because he wants to help all of the american people. >> here's the problem -- >> and not just the rich
's interesting. bill clinton is everywhere. melissa, i saw an e-mail out here. barack obama said after the debate he's meeting up with bill clinton again. who is the running mate, biden or clinton? >> biden is definitely the running mate. look, as the former president and as a former president two terms that the party is willing to put out there. the difference is george b. bush is a two-term president. the republican party does not have george w. bush on the trail, despite the fact that mr. romney has many bush advisers particularly in foreign policy. there's nothing like someone that held that office during good economic times and you put him on the trail. >> it's amazing you how that turn-around in this relationship. what's going through bill clinton's head? >> we can only imagine. don't fill in the blanks. >> shameless plugs. >> we have a good story today about how the problem with mitt romney is actually mitt romney and less about the campaign. >> mitt romney said it himself. >> chris christie best job with his ratings in his term. >> and for my colleague? >> of course, saturday and sunday 1
an attack dog and drawing contrast on where you lead the country. bill clinton was likeable and did that in debate. that's not mitt romney's strength, why should he try to do it there. >> we have a lot of recent history with mitt romney at debates. sure, sometimes he blows it, betting $10,000, other times he has really come back and done quite well and he has stepped up to the occasion. but it is mixed. there's a mixed bag. having said that, it is a completely different arena, the romney campaign knows that, debating eight, ten, six on stage and going head to head with the president. >> when you look at the race as a whole, want to read you something from the national journal in a thing called defying gravity. talked about how everybody thinks the economy is bad, the country is going in the wrong direction and they wrote perhaps most concerning for romney, obama is winning a healthy share of votes from people who think he has steered the country off course. one out of four obama supporters in recent all state national journal heartland monitor poll said the country was on the wrong
has some brass as bill clinton would say. he tells george stephanopoulos he thinks the president is going to lie in the debates. >> i think the challenge that i'll have in the debate is that the president tends to -- how shall i say it, say things that aren't true. >> jennifer: all right. it isn't just the pot calling the kettle black it is also the pot's friends. mitt romney's surrogates have been repeating the same idea over the past 24 hours like karl rove who wrote in the "wall street journal," mr. obama has taken ordinary political differences between anything we've seen. every day it seems he attempts to disqualify his opponent through deliberate and undeniable falsehoods. and then when he was asked by jim acosta when romney was at cnn whether he had played fast and loose with the facts from time to time romney says this. >> we've been absolutely spot on and any time there's anything that's been amiss we correct it or remove it. >> jennifer: absolutely spot on. the audacity of this -- he's lying about lying.
denver will decide if he gets another four years. he leaned on bill clinton to make the case this is no way he could have turned this around in four years. >> the economy is not fixed. i am telling you, nobody could have fixed this much damage in four years. the president's mock plan is better in the short run, the long run and a vision where all of us in this together is better than you be often your own. there is no on your own country in the world succeeding like those who have a good "we are all in this together" strategy. >>reporter: the order of questions is decided. the president gets the first. the problem with the argument that former president clinton made in 2009 president obama said if he didn't turn this around in 3 or 3 1/2 years it would be a one-term proposition. something governor romney will point out. >> the governor aides say -- the obama camp will focus on the economy, taxes and the deficit and will hit romney hard on the idea that bill clinton has been making and made at the democratic national convention in charlotte, north carolina, it does not add up
. leaving the heavy lifting yet again today to former president bill clinton in new hampshire, who made the case this is a choice about the next four years. >> the economy is not fixed. i am telling you, nobody can fix this much damage in four years. but the president's economic plan is better in the short run, better in the long run. >> reporter: the president made the opposite case in 2009. vowing to get the economy fixed in three years or this would be in his words a one-term proposition. which is why senator marco rubio told fox he believes the president will be vulnerable tonight if romney focuses on this point. >> we can't afford four more years of barack obama. we can barely aforfour more months. if we have four more years of president obama we can't wait four years for the economy to start growing. >> reporter: that may be resonating as the race tightening again in latest nbc news, "wall street journal" poll. romney is trailing by three points, within the margin of error. 46% of registered voters approve of the president's handling of the economy. 51% disapprove. top aides say t
but had one of his best surrogates former president bill clinton aides say will be the primary case tonight which this was an economic crisis he inherited and tough to turn around in one term. take a listen to bill clinton. >> the economy is not fixed. i'm telling you nobody could have fixed this much damage in four years. but the president's economic plan is better in the short run, better in the long run and a vision of we're all in this together is a heck of a lot better than you're on your own. there is no you're on your own country in the world succeeding like those who have a good we're all in this together strategy. [cheers and applause] none, not one. the challenge for the president tonight though is back in early 2009 he said if he didn't turn around the economy for n. three years it would be a one-term proposition. that's the problem when you are incouple again you have got a record that's going to it be under microscope not just from the moderator but mitt romney as well, shep. >> shepard: it seems he has a strategy of his own for going after mitt romney. >> when you talk
the math, does the math work? bill clinton told us in charlotte, it's all about math. >> can he be nice, can he be specific, can he bring him down. what this guy needs is a sister soldier moment. he is in dire need of standing up to his base and saying no more tax cuts, we're not going to be going out and demeaning people. we're going to be a good country that bands together. thank you bill pretty show, we'll see you right after this. and lynn sweet. they were great, he says especially on together. yeah. they are. we'll bring them back. >> announcer: this is the "bill health matters to all of us. that's why lysol has started a mission for health. with new mom programs, lysol healthy habits initiatives in schools and disaster relief efforts. when you use lysol at home, you'll know you're a part of something bigger. for healthy tips and more, visit lysol.com/missionforhealth.

am not going to exploit for political purposes my opponent's youth and inexperience. >> bill clinton was on the other side of that equation while debating another 73 year old. this one was former senator bob dole. clinton handled the issue this way. >> i don't think senator bill is too old to be president. it's the age of his ideas that i question. >> so we'll have to wait and see if there is a memorable moment tonight that can shape the final month of the race. sometimes it is a one liner. sometimes it is a facial expression. >>> white house soup of the day. that is good soup. i wish i were eating it today. coconut shrimp. you are watching "the daily rundown" on msnbc.

the moderator and critecal moments of campaign is how you turn. >> bill clinton used wag the platform. >> how do you advice. not to put your finger. it is a question of emphasis. and al gore did something risky and it back fired. he walked off his podium and invaded governor bush's speech. he was prepared for al gore to approach him. al gore had done that in the prevous primary. how close do they have to be prepared. you have to be comfortable and prepared for everything . so part of it is, not only what you are saying but how you are reacting and looking and you try to practice those and anticipate. >> is there such a thing as being over prepared and you are not able to be spontanous. this is uncontrolled environment. i try to say you can't control the minutes, but have in your head what it is that you want to do and practice how you do different things and you don't have a script. >> it is three agencies of that are gone when i am there. congress and. what is the third one. >> maximizing dralm a. >> it is what we all remember . we listen for lines. and it a cap stone to what reagan won. it was
. president obama had two appointees. george w. bush had two appointees. bill clinton had two. but there could be a bunch in a hurry. justice ginsburg is the most likely to leave. and if president obama wins, that wouldn't change the balance of five republicans and four democrats. but if the five-to-four balance shifts, you could see dramatic dramatic changes in the court. it all depends on who >> do you simply assume president obama would name someone like sonja sot ma yor or clarence thomas for that matter? can you just assume those would be the possibilit probabilities if you will? >> that is precisely what i would assume. you know, there's a mythology about the court that presidents often areurprised by how their justices turn out. but you know, that is very much the exception rather than the rule. if you look at the justices currently on the court right now, every single one of them has turned out more or less as re there are individual cases, there are surprises. i certainly was surpred by roberts' vote in the affordable care act case. hatlarge presidents w you e is what you get. iden yo
me what they're worried about. >> every sitting president goes through this. bill clinton did it. george bush. the idea is to take a deep dive into one's own policies and also look at your opponent's policies and make sure that you're deeply well read into all the the specifics. and so, nobody can be well versed in everything that you've done. i certainly don't remember what i did last year and i bet you don't either. every moment of it, so that's part of the goal. another part of it is to come up with those quote zingers or moments, as much they say they're thot doing it, you know they did it. that's part of it. to come armed with some ready lines to throw out when you need them. >> i'm not even sure i know what i did last week, so i get it. thanks so much. jessica yellin. we want to go back now to anderson cooper a anderson cooper in the cnn election center. >> candy, i can't remember what i did yesterday. let's talk about who has the edge going into tonight. >> anderson, a year ago, you would have said romney had the edge. obama has to defend his lousy jobs record. he's runnin
,000 a year, that we should go back to the race we had when bill clinton was president, when we created 22 million jobs, what from deficit to surplus and created a whole created a lot of millionaires to boot. the reason this is important is because they doing that we can not only reduce the deficit. we can not only encourage job growth of small businesses, but were also to make investments necessary in education or in energy. and we do have a difference when it comes to definitions of small business. under my plan, 97% of small businesses would not see their income taxes go up. governor romney says well, those top 3% of the job creators they burdened. under governor romney's definition, as a whole bunch of millionaires and billionaires who are small-business. donald trump is a small business. i know donald trump doesn't like to think of himself as small anything, but that is how you define small businesses after getting small-business income. that kind of approach i believe will not grow our economy because the only way to pay for without either burdening the middle-class or blowing up our
about the last 20 years or so. h.w. bush first, then bill clinton raised taxes, all of these predictions of doom, instead we had the '90s boom and george w. bush cut taxes and there were predictions of prosperity and instead we had the slowest decade since world war ii and then the crisis. none of this is to say that tax cuts cause economic problems or tax increases lead to prosperity. i don't know anyone who seriously makes that argument. the question is, how important are tax cuts to economic growth? and i don't know how you look at recent history and say that relatively modest changes in the top marginal tax rate is the main force driving the american economy. >> yet, it is the sort of magical ball, the ball, once you slash taxes for top income earners everything is going to magically right itself. i think it's -- josh, i thought it was an interesting -- that sound we played from romney, kind of backing away from his announcement that everybody's tax rates are going to go down. it is, i think, an acknowledgement the tax plan that he put out is math mat kaly impossible. to balance the
clarified. >> the middle class was buried by the policies of romney and ryan supported as bill clinton said all they're suggesting when he's asked about this and he's the best, he made the comment, he said, what they're proposing is bush economic policies on steroids. >> now, the president also visited here in nevada, one of his local campaign offices with volunteers. he said the sessions have been so intense that it feels like homework to him, almost like cramming for a final exam. >> bill: republicans are not giving up. six electoral votes. everyone is important, right, ed? >> that's right. some of mitt romney's key surrogate have been here shadowing the president while he does debate prep. yesterday it was ann romney. i saw matt romney was appearing with marco rubio, one of the rising stars from florida. he's here to help turn out the hispanic vote in navy nevada. i sat down with him for an exclusive one on one. he said republicans should calm down about the polls. he believes that mitt romney's going to have a strong debate and he said the message should be very simple. take a listen. >
. kennedy, under lyndon johnson under jimmy carter, under bill clinton, and under barack obama. but the main thing is on pure, flat numbers don't lie. obama has created more jobs than -- not only more jobs than george w. bush. he's brought back all of the jobs lost under george w. bush. so when mitt romney and paul ryan say obama's done nothing about job creation, they are lyin' through their teeth. it is a great big fat lie! and they know it! >> announcer: this is the "bill press show." the powerful my steal an election but they cannot steal democracy. sir... excuse me, excuse me... can i get you to sign off on the johnson case... ♪ we built this city! ♪ don't let food hang around. ♪ on rock & roll! ♪ [ orbit trumpet plays ] clean it up with orbit!

, bill clinton. it only took bush and dick cheney one-term to bring about the recession. now we have another democrat to the rescue. why do we keep having these right-wing people in places of power when all we have our own financial disaster after another? host: by the way, mitt romney writes in the wall street journal and opinion. two candidates are preparing for the debate on wednesday in denver. at the same time we are asking about the vp candidates and whether they will impact your votes. vermont on the line, independence, mary. will the candidates impact your vote? caller: absolutely. primarily, we need someone who is ready to go if something should happen to the president. by far, biden exceeds paul ryan in those qualifications. he has done a wonderful job as vice president. truly exceptional in comparison to others. you don't hear about it much, but if you go to alternate media you get a very good idea of how hard this man works and how capable he is. the definitely would be my choice. the other thing i would like to comment on. i am a retired teacher. americans really need to
president was down nine points in mid-september and was tied with bill clinton by the end of october. the clinton eventually won. former clinton pollster is questioning the assumptions being made in today's polls. >> these polls are assuming that you have the same high level of african-american, latino and young people vote in 2012 that you had in 2008. >> obama campaign senior advisor david axelrod said they widely vary so when they all pointed in one direction, they are all wrong. but we are planning for a close race as we always have. another democratic strategist offered this assessment. >> the race isn't over. this can move back three or four times between now and november 6th. >> romney you try to create that momentum. >> of the eight presidential races where the leads were cut or flipped by the opponent, average of comebacks was roughly 35% and in some cases it was the debate that moved the needle. >> gregg: as a reminder we are daig days away from that first presidential debate. we'll have live coverage of the event hosted by megyn kelly and bret baier. that is coming up righ
